Did you stay up?

Thank you to, clockwise from top left: Mark Malone, Neil Curran, Olga Cronin and Johnny Keenan, with, not pictured: Mike McGrath Bryan (producer) and Gavin Hennessy (audio/visual effects) our panel on last night’s Broadsheet on the Telly.

Subjects teased, probed and prodded included State and Church cosiness, the Jobstown trial and what does it mean to be left wing.

The show can be viewed in its raw entirety above.

All political persuasions welcome.

Thanks all.

    …I watched last nights episode but the best bit was at the end when John did a survey of political views of participants…surprise, surprise…everyone turns out to be left wing but even Johnny Keenan admits that it is a bit of an echo chamber…

        …and Mark Malone says hes an anarchist…never sure with anarchists…I’ve read Kropotkin but I can never decide if they are very left wing or very right wing…

        Initially, this comment was authored by John “Preposterous” Ryan and was subsequently changed to Bodger.

        I was quick, but not quick enough!

            As in Preposterous’s name will show up as author when moderating. One has to publish and then change the name.

            I can give you his email if you wish to personally bully him or just have the chat.

            Is that directed at me?

            It was just an observation, a logical one at that, no need for the BIG COUNTDOWN TO DOOM!

    There’s a very simple solution to your problem.
    It’s staring at you from the mirror.

        …ah you’re up…I watched last night on Youtube and there you were on the sideshow bobs chat…it was like sitting in a pub listening to a discussion but the next table is full of very loud drunk people trying to talk over their even more drunk mate…

          What way does it work?
          It’s broadcast live but you can only comment when it’s on?
          ( I’m never awake that late )

            …last night for the first time I clicked on the Youtube icon on the Broadsheet feed and the chat was streaming alongside the screen…I noticed someone claim that on a previous night it was fairly racist…if last night was anything to go by it must have been pretty bad…

            hi that was me
            in no way did I mean to imply last night’s commentators were part of a previous racist live feed, that left quite an impression but I didn’t recognise the names used so who knows
            last night was regulars doing thier own thing, I was trying to say it was an improvement
            wasn’t a conversation I felt I could jump into but that’s something else

    Basically the same panellists every week, give or take. Getting clique(y). Some variation would be nice or it’ll die a death!

      To be fair, it’s not like they don’t ask every week, maybe there are no other applicants?

            Why thank you ben. It’s managing to stay up past the witching hour that’s the trick.

            Wiz you Meeldred, eet would be a be-witching hourrr *

          I think you’d be great too but then, if you disclosed a secret past life as a white supremacist I’d probably still think you were great because you had me at “howayeh” :)
